‘ THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE ‘

The Will Of The People: This single tagline is the biggest sack of SH*T ever uttered by a political leader:

Do the American people really buy into this lie?  Do they really believe that they can make a difference?

Why do you ask Professor?

We can train ourselves to believe just about anything.  This piece of bovine fecal matter is a testament to that accusation by me……we are told that the will of the people is our governing principle and that the president serves at the leisure of the voter…..and not solely the US but any country that has “free” elections….the will of the people will prevail.

An excellent ideal if only it were true and a governance principle….but as I have said….it is a sack of SH*T!

Let’s just look at a few historical events in the past couple of decades to prove the point…..

First let us travel to Iran….after WW2 there was an election a dude named Ali Razmara was elected PM but was assassinated a month into his reign and a nationalistic man named Mossadeq becomes PM and the parliament votes to nationalize the oil industry….and in 1953 he was overthrown with help from intel services of US and UK.

Second, 1954 Guatemala…a leftist president was elected by the people of Guatemala and he began his reign by nationalizing the fruit industry to the opposition of Standard Fruit…..CIA put together an operation to remove Guzman from office and put in their little “yes” man Armas.

Now on to 1970 Chile.…..Allende was voted into the presidency of Chile by a popular vote, a close vote which went to the Congress to be settled and Allende won.  After his election a depression began and to head off a complete breakdown he began to nationalize banks and some foreign companies…..because he was a leftist the old “the commies are coming” ploy was played out by the CIA and he was overthrown in a favor of a dictator Pinochet.

These people were elected by the people to carry out their will……and the US decided that was not good enough and worked to replace them.

It is NEVER about the will of the people but rather the will of capital that precipitated the change in governance.  The people had nothing to do with the decision to overthrow these elected officials.

But the American people continue to buy into the con of “the will of the people”.

‘ ENOUGH IS A GODDAMN ENOUGH ‘

The Paris attacks were all the rage in the media and now that it is all but over it is still all the rage.…..but now the media is fixated on what they see as anti-Semitism…..pundits like Morning Joe’s Scarborough of MSNBC is completely flabbergasted at the way Europeans are treating the Jews especially in France.  His question is did these people NOT learn anything from the Holocaust and the events that lead to it?

He is a staunch Israel supporter which is okay with me as long as he does not lie or ignore other facts in that support.  Recently he, Scarborough, went on and on about the attacks that have been leveled at Jews since the Paris attacks…..and his crony Mika quoted a few stats about the rise in nationalistic feelings and the anti-Semitism.  Scarborough said that there have been many attacks on Jews especially against synagogues that have led to a security detail to protect Jewish interests in France.

Scarborough is not alone….almost all media outlets, at least the so-called reputable ones, are following suit.

His concern is admirable but he should fixate on ALL attacks on religious minorities.…for incidence, since the Paris attacks there has been 21 attacks on mosques in France and 33 threatening letters and yet it is not important enough for these overpaid hacks to mention it.  But 10,000 French troops are used to protect Jewish interests.

Of course the MSM seems to think that the world owes Israel and Jews more protection than other minorities because of World War 2……personally, I think any debt owed Jews for their suffering in WW2 has been paid….and in full.

When will the world realize that Israel is playing on their sympathy and because it works so goddamn well…..Israel gets a free ride….all they have to do is invoke the mantra of security and the world bends over and ignores any action that Israel takes….whether legitimate of not.

Muslims are being treated worse because the perpetrators of the violence claim to be Muslims………and thow world ignores their plight. 

ENOUGH IS A GODDAMN ENOUGH!

BERLIN WALL: EAST – WEST DIVIDE…

November 8 marked the 25th year following the fall of the Berlin Wall, which divided Eastern and Western Europe as a consequence of WWII. The Berlin Wall and other practical metaphors such as the Cold War, Iron Curtain and the juxtaposition of democracy vs. communism formulated the world view of the baby boom generations as they grew to maturity. Many of us baby booms have vivid memories of the imposed constraints that required us negotiate and navigate our political activity around the democratic and communist political paradigm that coloured the Cold War environment.

In the wake of the fall of the Berlin Wall and demise of the former Soviet Union, the Cold War was ended, the Iron Curtain was lifted and the much touted communism threat to the United States became a politically moot point. Many of us watched news report footage of the East Germans breaking down the wall and streaming to the west to begin new lives. I recall the popular refrain that America has won the Cold War and the world is no longer divided by a binary political paradigm. “America is the only super power in the world” became a political mantra in some quarters.

It is generally understood that WWII was the result of events that occurred in Vienna and Berlin, but at the end of the conflict many populations in the world were massively impacted by collateral damage, consequences and results of the war. The partition of East from West Germany was among the outcomes of WWII and the 25th anniversary of the Berlin Walls demise remains a profound experience to many. Interestingly enough little has changed in the geo-political dynamic and trajectory of the United States, apart from the emergence of China as a major economy and global role player.

The emergence of China as a macro role player on the global stage coupled with general acknowledgement that in the foreseeable future China will eclipse the United States as the world’s largest economy, virtually guarantees a continuation of the east vs. west paradigm throughout the 21st century. In addition, events unfolding in the Ukraine portends conflicts in the countries of Eastern Europe as Russia seems to be positioning to reclaim countries that comprised her former empire. Some suggest that Russia’s initiative in the Crimea and Ukraine is based in the fact that NATO, a formulation of the Cold War, is making political overtures to the Ukraine and other countries to join the NATO political orbit. If this suggestion is true, the Russian President Putin is likely affronted by it and will act accordingly going forward.

Apparently the current global scenarios that are unfolding would lead one to believe that the east vs. west adversarial paradigm will stay in place for the foreseeable future. But the east vs. west divide had a much ancient origin then the Berlin Wall and Cold War advent, and it can be traced to the beginning of Christianity in Europe. This ancient divide took the form of a religious schism that bifurcated Christianity in the east and west. Recorded in history as the east vs. west “schism,” it occurred in 325 AD as a result of the proceedings of the first ecumenical Counsel of Nicaea.

The Counsel of Nicaea was convened by Roman Emperor Constantine for the purpose of consolidating Christianity under the domination of Rome. The schism occurred when the emperor excommunicated bishops from the Ethiopian Orthodox Church and branded them as heretical for adhering to their doctrine of monophysitism, which holds that the nature of Christ was singular and divine. The new Roman doctrine asserted that the nature of Christ was part human and part divide. Hence, the Ethiopian contingent of the faith was excommunicated from the first ecumenical council and all other subsequent ecumenical counsels.

There is great irony by the fact that the Roman Church was the most recent addition to world Christianity and had only just stopped persecuting Christians in 313 AD by way of the Treaty of Milan… The east vs. west paradigm is an ancient dynamic and will most likely remain as practical dichotomy will into the 21st century and perhaps the next century. However, it is noteworthy to observe that the current east vs. west dynamic is based in a secular and political scenario and its consequences. On the other hand the east vs. west schism that occurred in the 4th century animated the religious and spiritual realms…
